in the "new york times" in 2005. george bush partially declassified it. i learned, for the first time, to my extreme dismay, that in the first 3.5 years of this program, the president had used his article to authority to run the program, rather than the provisions of law, fica, which congress enacted in 1978, the foreign intelligence surveillance act was passed in 1978 in response to the abuses of the nixon administration and the recommendation of the church commission. it set up a careful system of a fisa court, an intelligence committee on the hill was set up then to monitor these applications. it worked very well, in my view, through 2001. congress after that pulled it back. i believe strongly that may the amount of metadata is excessive. i am sure my buddy thinks this. that ought to be debated. maybe the program should be narrowed. there has been robust oversight over the years. >> i want to be clear on this. who can accesses data and for what purposes? >> i think this was in a letter that went to the hill yesterday. papers were sent to congress in 2009. i cannot speak to any individual
be surprised to find out you voted for george bush in 1988? >> guest: i suppose so, because i think the most surprised person would probably be president bush. c-span: why do you think he'd be surprised? >> guest: well, i think that most presidents get sensitive about the post and newsweek as well. and they--he had his issues with us, but i think any president does. but i th--i--i suspect he would not think i'd voted for him. c-span: give us a--just a thumbnail sketch of the post company today. how many newspapers, television stations, how big is it, what's the gross revenues on a year's basis? >> guest: we're at about $1.6 billion in annual revenues, and the company holds mainly the washington post, and we have a small newspaper, the everel--everett herald and half of the international herald tribune. and then we have newsweek and we have six television stations and a million and a half cable connections. and we also have digital ink, which is our electronic media and a washington post web site. c-span: are you still chairman of the executive committee? >> guest: no--oh, yes, i am chairman
to george w. bush emphasizing that there is an american president he gets along with. it's not barack obama. and the president also in describing the slouch, the bored-looking kid. that's not the way you would expect the president to describe another head of state. he also, though, did emphasize he is not going to boycott the olympics. he said it's really important for the athletes, they've trained. and he said the best message, because of that ban in russia on homosexuality is for gay and lesbian athletes to come home with the gold. >> i know he talked a little bit about the terror threat. we've been under overseas for the last several days. and i know there's late word now about those embassy and diplomatic closings. what have you heard? >> indeed the state department says that on sunday, they're going to reopen 18 of the 19 yemen, will remain closed, also closed will be lahore, the consulate in pakistan they closed last night overnight. so there's a reopening. they've obviously shored up the defenses of these diplomatic posts and they couldn't have kept them closed forever. >> all right.
everything we could to overthrow the democratically-elected government of president aristide. george bush blocked loans from the interamerican development foundation of $146 million loans for education, water and things like that. the international republican institute arranged and organized the opposition to it and then we as a country trained rebel soldiers in the dominican republic, trained and armed them to come to haiti to overthrow the government and then the last analysis, those were a pulse didn't figure into it. bush carried out the coup himself on american soldiers who arrived at the home of the president and took him off at 3:00 in the morning to the central african republic. we have to had to go there. maxine waters, a jamaican parliamentarian and sharon webster and the president's lawyer flew off to rescue him to bring him back to jamaica and then condoleezza rice threatened to make the jamaican government -- threatened to make it very difficult for them if jamaica accepted aristide even for a matter of days before he went to south africa. all because he said the minimum inco
much fun. joining us now is 59 former assistant to george w. bush and angela, media matters as great about the potential the republican party would be pased with something to put them into a tizzy is fun? >> but i ancestries the rnc and media matters partner and work together maybe did what the documentary on hillary because it wl upstage obama that we did not elect hillary because we elected obama. lou: it does get complicated but not as complicated at the lexicon they're using. i have seen administrations tried to control the language that is a slight political correctness if you do that you control thought. >> this administration takes it to a level i have never seen. >> but they did is that if you tell the american people when they see a dock it is enough and they know the difference.

base will do the same in 2016. they put up with george bush i, put up with bob dole. deeply disappointed by george w., disappointed with mitt romney. will now come loaded for bear for 2016. i predict the hard right will take over the republican party in 2016 and the nomination is going to rand paul. you watch. this is what i do for a living. >> well, i kind of doing it for a living. i get predictions wrong, too. i love he went out on a limb there. i guess i don't quite see it with rand paul for a couple of reasons. one of them i look at is we're talking about ted cruz, talking about rand paul, scott walker. there's going to be so much territory that's occupied by all sorts of different candidates on the right, i almost wonder if that's a perfect setup for the establishment candidate who seems to win these things. >> in the last six iowa caucuses, the winner has won the nomination twice. it's not a path to the nomination, santorum, huckabee, et cetera. also the moderate candidate or the mitt romney won last time, john mccain before that, this candidate tends to win the primar
this week when they heard president george w. bush needed a stent inserted to clear a blockage near his heart. in this week's "american journey" report, tom foreman shows us how this incident could be a wake-up call for others who think they are not at risk for heart disease. >> reporter: in office and out, george w. bush has been regarded by many as the most fit president ever, mountain biking, running, swimming, golfing, weightlifting, and laboring on his ranch. his annual physicals while in office found him in excellent health with no history of hypertension or diabetes and low to very low coronary artery disease risk. so when physicians found a heart blockage and inserted a stent to reopen an artery, some people may have been stunned, but not dr. barron lerner. >> people shouldn't assume just because they exercise a lot that they don't have a heart problem. >> reporter: he wrote a book called "when illness goes public." he says when famous people face illness, this is the good that almost always follows, public awareness and action rise sharply. when betty ford disclosed she had bre
holt eek en on whether he's moved to free market capitalism. former president george w. bush in the hospital after successfully undergoing a heart stent being placed. the blockage was discovered at the cooper clinic in dallas yesterday and at the recommendation of his doctor, a stent was placed in his artery. a bush spokesman says the former president is in high spirits and is expected to be discharge tomorrow. fannie may and freddie mac in his economic pitch today. >> private capital should take a bigger role in the mortgage market. i know that sounds confusing to folks who call me a socialist. i think i saw posters on the way in. but i actually believe in the free market. i believe that our housing system should operate where there's a limited government role and private lending should be the backbone of the housing market. >> joining us now. doug has holtz-aekin. president of the american action forum. doug, good to have you with us. >> thank you. >> the president quite rightly noting his departure from what has been a seemingly socialist kind of perspective and way in his
, for operations are supported, we cut the budget and increased the number of overseas activities, and george w. bush did not run for president -- if you go back to his campaign, he did not run promising a big defense buildup and he was not intending to make foreign policy the centerpiece of his policy, and he ended up making the most fraught decision about the war in iraq. i do not think cutting our military will be the best way to keep us out of trouble in the south china sea. i want steadiness and resolve and let's sustain the rebalance. that means we can make modest cuts in defense. >> amen. i feel like i should applaud. i think that was very powerful on michael's part. i would not put all my eggs in one basket. i want peace through strength or a modern-day version of it because i want a military that deters. i want other things, too. i want strong allies, our partners' capacity to be robust enough to defend themselves if needed and take care of their neighborhoods, so to speak. i want all of our tools of soft power to be effective, partly through the reinforcement from our hard power. i wa
them because they won their freedom. of the president. we george bush blocked loans from the inter-american development of foundation of 146 million. loans for water, education, things like that. the international republican institute arranged and organized the opposition to it. we as a country trained soldier in the dominican republic. trained and armed those rebels didn't figure in to it. the bush -- when the american soldiers arrived at the home of the president and took him off at 3:00 in the morning to the central african republican. we had to go there. maxine waters, a jamaican parliament tear, sharon hay webster, the president's lawyer flew off with a plane to rescue him and bring him back to jamaica and condoleezza rice threatened the jamie can government to make it very difficult for them. if jamaican accepted it. all because he said the minimum income ought to be raised from $1 a day to $2 a day. that the sweat shop owners essentially white in haiti combined with american authorities to get him thrown out of office. if you look at the history of american foreign aid. what
, therefore, george bush could say, well, don't pay into it. simply give each potential -- each person a fund. you monetize your deferred compensation. it's a terrible idea. it further damages the ability of people to have a social thing. and by the way, the link to having a social wage is that it's dramatic create important for society. -- dramatically important for society. because then people start to see objectively their interests are united. you know, one of the great tricks of american history is rather than do countercyclical spending through social expenditure, countercyclical spending in america has always been done through military spending. you spend militarily to bring the economy back to life. that was the whole post-war golden age, etc. so in that sense one has to confront this idea, you know, because it was easy to do countercyclical spending with the military because it's already a hierarchical society, you know, in military encampments. but society is not hierarchical, and the more you begin to feel objectively that your ties with other people are there, you might be able to
partners. even with george h.w. bush, gorbachev presided over the cold war and reunion if reunif. even clinton and boris yeltsin. they had a personal relationship. friendly. marked anker wrath. personal relationship between the two leaders are critical to the success for both countries. >> would you say that the common thread is that all of the u.s. presidents in the past did actually talk or speak with the russian president? is that a difference now? >> yeah. i think it's what we would call a table stake. there has to actually be a relationship in cooperation to talking. u.s. presidents nixon and reagan, hardliners and even george h.w. bush was more cooperative. they need to reach out and have relationships. and form a personal bond and even reagan did that. reagan was as tough as they come. they knew it was important to cooperation. so i think we need to see a little bit more of that from president obama. >> all right. nic ragoone. you are a presidential historian always good to talk to you. >> thanks, aly. >> alisyn: defying the top cop in their state in giving teachers guns. is tha
asked former team owner and then president george w. bush if he believes that what he was seeing on the feel was real. his response was that he wasn't sure. but he hopes so and he wanted to give those playing the benefit of the doubt. today it's clear that they no longer deserve any benefit of any doubt. those who have engaged in this dishonesty now unfairly indict a whole group of people for trying to do it right. it takes hundreds of players who are innocent and lump them together with the few who are guilty or could be guilty. but there is even a bigger question for the tens of millions of americans who follow baseball. if the game is no longer a cynic, why care about the results? the mantra in many lockers rooms across the nation, and i personally heard it, is if you're not cheating, you're not trying. the win at all cost attitude is per vasesive. it dominates the landscape. this is not just about sports. with careers on the lines, so much money to be made, so much glory to be achieved, so much fame to be had, those who initially sought to do it right end up doing it wrong. s
